A Canadian Film Discussion Channelled

"Have you seen (the Canadian film)______?" somehow made it out repeatedly between fork-loads of delicious fattening breakfast. Meeting with an old friend in order to take in platefuls of food and fine discussion face-to-face, not via Facebook or some such human-contact-avoidance program, is always a welcome break from the rigours of life.

One thing we both agreed on is that it would be nice to have a cable channel devoted to Canadian films. Such an initiative has been proposed before by some known Canadian filmmakers including David Cronenberg. Most welcome would be homegrown television drama, and, I can't believe I'm saying this, sitcoms.

Sign me up. And Greg, too. Especially if the network programs the classic feature films Mon oncle Antoine and Face Off, and the television dramas Seeing Things and Wojeck.
